Forget Van Gough, there's a new artist in town – Harley the sea lion!

This cutie started painting a month ago and has created some flipping good pieces of art.

Dubbed "Sea Lion – ardo da Vinci", this talented sea mammal lives at Chessington World of Adventures Resort. He's set to auction off his latest work – Arf Attack – this Saturday (28 June).

Clever Harley created the piece with non-toxic paint and the money raised will go to charity.

Staff introduced painting to the sea lion's routine as part of an enrichment programme.

Animal trainer Kate Taylor, who works with Harley, explained: "Painting is great for calming the sea lions and it's something Harley really enjoys and has a real skill for."

Adorable! We can see this work of art going for millions come Saturday!
